Does the supercharger require a tune to make it work?

It does. I'll be working with Bob at Stage FP on the tuning!

Thanks, that means a lot!

Parts are coming in faster than I can unbox them!



My 3.73 diff came in yesterday along with a finned diff cover. I'm still waiting on the Quaife LSD and bushings to come in, but they should be in any day! Turner Motorsport camber plates came in as well, and those will go on once the coilovers come in.

Not making a ton of progress, but I got the ECU flashed and ready to be tuned today and ordered some o-rings for the S65 injectors. My coilovers are taking a long time to ship out from TC Kline so I just hope I have something to work on this weekend!

Update!

Supercharger went on today with the help of some friends!

So far so good. Check engine light is on, but idle is smooth, no boost leaks, and it pulls so much harder up to redline.

Not sure how I missed this build, but great work and can't wait to see how the super charger turns out.

You selling the Turner Intake by any chance?

Thank you! So far so good! Time will tell with reliability, but incredibly smooth so far.

It is indeed looking for a new home! I'll shoot you a PM.

So far so good with the supercharger. Finally got it dialed in and relocated the IAT to the charge pipe to give the DME proper readings and fix some codes. I ordered Snow Performance Stage 2 methanol injection and nozzle #5 as per Bob at StageFP's recommendation, so that'll be coming soon!

Mail came again this week! I'm converting the inner parts of the front end using vents, ducts, and fender liners from a 335is. These ducts will feed a Stett oil cooler on the passenger side and the supercharger intake on the driver side. Cooling will be handled by a CSF radiator just for good measure. Still waiting on the oil cooler to come in to get this project started!






I also finally got the TC Kline SA coilovers in. Looks like I'll be borrowing a spring compressor to do this job, as it reuses the OEM upper strut mount for some reason.

Epic build, any plans for the tranny?

I heard that it is often the weak link when supercharging. Block is pretty solid.

Definitely looking into clutch upgrade options to minimize slipping, I'm just not sure which ones are solid options compared to OEM fit and finish.

Thank you! I just knocked out a 3 stage paint correction and ceramic coat this weekend and the paint is soft and looks like glass!

Well since this is a photo thread, here's a photo dump from yesterday after the paint correction!

Meth injection kit came in today! Just waiting on some oil cooler parts before I jump into taking my whole front end apart.

Car looks great.

TC Kline was a pleasure to work with on my last car. I felt that even the 1-way adjustable dampers punched above their weight. One of the better values in a performance damper IME.

Limit changes to one at a time, and keep a log to track progress. Cheers.

That's good to hear! Definitely want to feel how the dampening changes affect the car. The car feels pretty close to how it did before on the street, maybe even more comfortable. I'm excited to see how it feels on the track.

Finally got them in!

Car looks great! I’m enjoying following your build. I don’t think you will have any regrets on the TC Kline suspension they get great reviews. How’s the car running with the SC?

Have you dynoed it since installing the SC? Curious what your numbers are at currently.

Thank you! I'm loving it so far, I just got an alignment yesterday and set it up for a track day next weekend. It's still just as comfortable as before, and I'm hoping for a lot more confidence going through corners at the track. The front height adjustment was a little disappointing with the 400 springs. At the lowest setting, it's about the same as stock ride height. A rep from TC Kline said that they had a shorter front spring, so I might look into that.

The supercharger has been great! I'm at about 2500 miles on it so far. I occasionally get some belt slipping noises at full steering lock, but I'm going to try and remedy that with a new belt tensioner and a power steering flush this week. I've tried a few times to set up an appointment with StageFP for the meth install and a dyno tune with no luck, so I'll likely be calling again this week.
